I too am glad you're feeling better. Please let us know if you have any questions before, during or after your chemo. Chemo is doable and I hope it kicks your cancer's butt!

Wishing you the best,

Kelly

Chemo is scary the first time. After that you know what to expect and it becomes the norm. I was diagnosed 3C in January. All was clean to the eye but found it microscopically on 2 of 27 nodes taken. The 2 nodes my nasty right ovary was sitting on. Started chemo the end of Feb (had to have an I p port put in, finished in June and am now NED....

Good luck with your journey. All of us here got your back on this. Any questions just ask .....

And remember - most importantly - You have cancer, cancer does NOT have you.....

Hi Chris. I also have been diagnosed with 3c on October 18th. I will be doing my 3rd week of Chemo this Wednesday. I was terrified the first week too. I also had a reaction to the Taxol the first week, but not the second. The Chemo Nurses will take good care of you. They sit right with you on your first one. So far I have been lucky. The first week I was a little tired. Probably because that is the week I get Carbo and Taxol. Last week I got just Taxol. I have not been sick at all. This week has been great. I have been able to go out and do things and do light housework. I even have been out walking.

Good luck to you. We are thinking of you.
